Some paintings take a few hours and some take a few days. I have been locked in mortal combat with Cap Day for six weeks and the end is not yet in sight. This painting which portrays the agonies and ecstasies of spectators at Yankee Stadium is the largest vertical canvas I have done. The spectators appeared on their own out of nowhere without much effort on my part. Making decisions about colors has been the problem. Red and yellow are prominent but there is also green which reminds us of what the game is played on and of course blue, the color of the Yankee caps which have just been handed out. Whenever I change one small bit of color there is a ripple effect on the rest of the painting which has to be attended to.

I am hoping Cap Day will be finished in time for The World Series. It won’t matter if the Yankees win or lose. The agonies and ecstasies look the same.

I know the perfect man who should have Cap Day hanging in his home. Is it finished. Where may I view it? Estimated cost?...
